Guide to Choosing the Right Columbus Neighborhood

With Columbus consistently ranked as one of the top cities to live in the United States, it’s no surprise that more people are flocking here to work, play and raise a family. But the Columbus area is made up of several unique neighborhoods—when it comes to lifestyle, each one offers a slightly different experience.

Whether you want to move to an apartment, condominium or home in Columbus, check out this guide to choosing the right neighborhood for you.

 

Arena District 

Moving from a Columbus Apartment to a Condominium

In the heart of downtown Columbus lies the Arena District, the epicenter of the city that houses the top sports, entertainment, food and nightlife options—including Nationwide Arena, home of the Columbus Blue Jackets, and one of the nation’s leading concert venues. Additionally, the Arena District is in close proximity to the Scioto Mile, one of Columbus’ best and biggest parks, located along the Scioto River.

If you’re young (or young at heart) and are looking for a place to enjoy the city to its fullest, then the Arena District is the perfect neighborhood to live.

The Arena District features several apartment and condo options for living, including:

 

Arena District Apartments

Arena District Condominiums

Plus, walkable venues and entertainment options including:

 

Grandview Heights

Located in the Northwest outskirts of the city, Grandview Heights is widely regarded as one of the best places to raise a family in Ohio. The city’s school district is one of the top rated in the state, there are several parks located throughout the area, take a quick 10 minute drive, and you’re in the heart of Columbus. Grandview Heights is also home to a thriving culinary, arts and entertainment scene.

If you want to be within close proximity of Columbus, without living the true urban lifestyle, then Grandview Heights is the right neighborhood for you!

Grandview Heights features plenty of apartment, condo and single-family home options for living, including:

 

Grandview Heights Apartments

Grandview Heights Condominiums

Grandview Heights Single-Family Homes

 

Plus, walkable service providers including:

 

Dublin and Delaware, Ohio

The suburbs north of Columbus—namely, Dublin and Delaware, Ohio—are a fantastic place to live, away from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of urban life. If you work in the city, the drive to Columbus is under an hour, and both Dublin and Delaware have a ton to offer in their own right in regards to raising a family, shopping, entertainment and food.

If you’re looking for more living space in a quiet, family-friendly environment, then consider purchasing a home in Dublin or Delaware, Ohio!

Here are the neighborhoods we recommend looking at in Dublin and Delaware:
